Absa Premiership bottom-dwellers, AmaZulu are hoping for a change of fortune when they resume their second round of the season with a home league outing against Orlando Pirates. Usuthu have only managed a single win in 16 matches thus far. The Buccaneers have reiterated their intentions not to take it lightly against the struggling KZN outfit, and tonight’s tie could be one of the matches to look forward to early in the second round.
